Politics is perfecting the art of impossible. OPS was just a stop gap arrangement post Amma’s death . Poes Garden now wields the power officially. Unofficially, Chinamma was pulling all the strings.
After 29 years and series of outsiders, the state will have a Tamil Chief Minister but Supreme Court’s verdict, in disproportionate assets case where Sasikala is a co-accused , is expected within a week and could mar the celebration.
AIADMK leader KS Geeta has alleged that OPS was sacked because he refused to sign illegal deal worth crores. Chinamma’s elevation has set the alarm bells ringing in the party. The rise to the top ain’t going to be easy.
